Says LawEdge on its introduction on the website: “The U.S. Code is an intellectually rich and rewarding puzzle, but piecing it together requires repetitive, mechanical tasks.

This is the idea behind our innovative electronic statutory supplements.”

Daniel Friedmann (CTO) and Michael Friedmann (Managing Director) will also be presenting at Legaltech New York 2016, on Feb. 4, at 12:15 p.m to 1:30 p.m. (Eastern) on the CodeX Track—Legal Empowerment through Information Technology. Legal Disruption Lightning Round Two.  (For more information see
